VanVlack RichardVanVLACK, Richard George - On Thursday March 16, 2017, in his 67th year, after a 2-year battle with cancer, Richard passed away peacefully at home with his wife Cheryl lovingly by his side.

Richard was predeceased by his parents Annie Mabel and Harold, and brothers Clark Macmillan, Keith, and Robert.

He will be missed immensely by our wonderful and miraculous grandson, Quentin, Lisa Marie (our daughter in our hearts) and son Geoffrey. He will be missed greatly by brothers George (Leota), Douglas (Evelyn), Gordon (Kathy) and sisters Suzanne (Garry), Margaret, Lois, and Mary Lou (Frank). Richard was very close with Cheryl's family and will be sorely missed by Fawnda (Robin), Roger (Debbie), Laurie, and Sarah (Tom).

Richard leaves behind umpteen nieces and nephews and great nieces and great nephews; each of whom has a special memory of Uncle Rick. Further, numerous friends and special golfing buddies will miss having Rick around for the good times and jokes. 

A special thanks goes to Dr. Colin Wilson, Richard's family physician who was so supportive during the past two years, to Lin, our Primary Palliative Care nurse who guided us through the last days of Richard's journey and to the Palliative Care Team from the hospital. 

The family will receive friends at the Township Chapel of the GORDON F. TOMPKINS FUNERAL HOMES, 435 Davis Drive, Kingston, on Friday March 24th between 2-4 p.m. and on Saturday March 25, one hour prior to the Service in Celebration of Richard's life which will be held at 1 p.m. in the chapel, followed by a reception. 

In lieu of flowers, if desired, memorial donations may be made in Richard's name for colon cancer research at the Toronto University Health Network, Princess Margaret Foundation or Mount Sinai Foundation or memorial donations may be made to Palliative Care at the Kingston University Health Network.
